FIDO Announces Latest Set of FIDO Certified Products
Adam Powers, Technical Director, FIDO Alliance
The FIDO Alliance is pleased to announce that nine new companies have completed FIDO certification. This brings the total number of FIDO® Certified products to 465.
The FIDO Certified program for functional certification provides assurance of compliance to FIDO standards, and has been a driving force for realizing the Alliance’s vision for universal and interoperable strong authentication. The broad, worldwide lineup of certified products gives service providers an array of options to roll out FIDO Authentication.
Today, more companies are taking advantage of FIDO’s new Authenticator Certification Levels program. The Authenticator Certification Levels are currently divided into two levels: FIDO Certified Level 1 (L1) Authenticator and FIDO Certified Level 2 (L2) Authenticator. These security evaluations increase consumer, enterprise and service providers’ confidence that their devices are protected from targeted attacks. The program also enables enterprises and online services to make better informed risk management decisions when registering credentials from FIDO-enabled devices.
In the near future, FIDO will be holding its first FIDO2 certification tests for servers and authenticators. This will also include the new Universal Server certification mark for servers that support the full range of FIDO Authenticators (UAF, U2F, FIDO2); FIDO recommends that relying parties consider deploying a Universal Server in order to ensure optimal end-user experience and compatibility.
